Error 3042 in Backup Job with DPX and SuzeLinux SLES9

Hello,

When I want to make full backup of my server (Proliant ML310 G3 with SLES9) on DDS72 with Data Protector Express (last version: 16 May 06) I experience some problem with unknown error message.

The Backup Job make the list of files on the server and when I hope it begin to write on DDS a error message rise

Error 3042: This is not a directory

and process stop without any other information.

Should someone help me ?
Thanks
(sorry for my poor english... I'm French)

I have the same problem with Data Protector Express 4.01 running on Novell's OES2 SLES 10 SP1.
Have restarted the DPXpress daemon and this did not help.

Any ideas??

Hi Gordon:

Currently DPX 3.5 and 4.0 does not support the backup of Novell OES versions of Linux.

Data Protector Express can backup OES!
=====================================

We are doing it ourselves, with v 4.01.

Only draw-back is that metadata is not backedup. I backup the metadata before the data backup by dataprotector with a pre-backup script scheduled by cron :

Code:
#!/bin/sh
metamig save VOL1 > /media/nss/VOL1/backup/metadata_vol1.xml
metamig save APPS > /media/nss/APPS/backup/metadata_apps.xml


The same can be done with the NDS/eDir data

Code:
#!/bin/sh
dsbk backup -f /media/nss/VOL1/backup/edir.bck -l /media/nss/VOL1/backup/edirbackup.log -w


Both commands (metamig and dsbk) can also be used to restore the content of the backups.

Also if the backups keep failing when backing up the whole server by selecting /, try deslecting /opt/novell/nss/mnt. Worked for me.
